WE NEED YOU TO HOPE AGAIN: The First Trailer For X-Men: Days of Future Past

If people in your neighbourhood are running around screaming "Blink! Blink! Blink!", it's not because to much TV has left them without the ability to do so, but rather that the popular X-woman has made her on-screen debut in the first trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past.

As a whole, the trailer focuses on conveying the plot more than 'wow', just like any time-travel based epic should. Jaws still drop however, as Rouge, Storm and Shadowcat from the original X-films, meet Beast, Mystique and co from X-Men: First Class, in amongst debuts like Bishop, and yes, Blink.

Give it a watch and see for yourself.

Starring Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, John McAvoy, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin and more, X-Men: Days of Future Past arrives May 23, 2014.
 Watch done, now what did you think? 


  1. I just saw this earlier, and I'm already wanting to see this movie tomorrow! Thank God Singer's back to guide and return this franchise back to its former glory.

    Can't wait.

    Although I will say as a stickler that it should've been Kitty Pryde, and not Wolverine that got to go back in time. Maybe it'll be explained better why it happens this way in the movie.

  2. it could be good, but it also might be a let down. i'll just go into it with out high expectations that's always a safe bet.

  3. I really, really hope Storm gets some great parts in this. Personally to me she is the other unsung key part of Days of Future Past, and I'd like to see Storm just get a revival in general to be honest.

    It must be hard choosing what mutants to keep and which to ditch for a two and a bit hour movie. Nightcrawler would've been cool given what a star he was of X-Men 2, and maybe the time travel thing will let them save Cyclops as well. He may not be my favourite X-Man, but an X-Movie without either him just seems like Jubilee in Rouge's pyjamas. Still, what pyjamas!!


  4. Right? Bishop! And Blink! I love them both, and am very happy to see them onscreen.
    I'm pretty sure the reason Wolverine is going back and not Kitty can be summed up in two words: Box Office.
    Also, Hugh Jackman, but really it's the same thing at this point.
    This could be good. It could also be a giant cluster. One thing it won't be is accurate. Let's face it, they gave that up a while ago. All we can hope for now is a good story and excellent acting that stays true to the characters if not the continuity. Oh, and I'd like to see Gambit again. Please?

  5. The other thing we can be sure of Random, this will probably help set up the expansion of Fox's X-movie verse at the same time. Ryan is making noises about Deadpools revival, and there's XForce... and nothing opens the door for Cable like time travel.
